The text is right-justified at the right tab stop.
8. Press the Tab key.
9. Type your text.
The text is left-justified (normal).
10. Press Enter to end the line of text.
11. Repeat Steps 6 through 10 for each line in the list.
As long as you limit the text to one line, the list should look great (refer to Figure 12-5 ) .
To make adjustments, select the list as a block (see Chapter 6 ) and use the mouse to adjust the tab
stops on the ruler. As you move the tab stops, a dashed line extends through your text, showing you
where the text lines up. Or, to be more precise, you can use the Tabs dialog box, as covered later in
this chapter.
Building a 2-column right-stop list
Another type of right-tab stop list is shown in Figure 12-6 . This type is commonly found in dramatic
programs but works just as well for a variety of purposes. Here’s how to concoct such a thing:
Figure 12-6: Right tab stops right-align the second column of this list.
1. Start out with a blank line of text.
2. Ensure that the Tab gizmo on the ruler shows the right tab stop.
3. Click the mouse at the 4-inch position on the ruler.
The position is just a guess at this point. Later, you can adjust the right tab stop setting to a more
visually appealing one.
4. Type the left column text.
